Yow! The plants are getting really freaky in this scorching weather. I thought I was hallucinating today when I walked by a crabapple tree & saw some blossoms dotting the upper branches... hello?! That's supposed to happen in, like, April!

Then tonight, my night-blooming cereus (aka Queen of the Night, no, I'm not making that up, it's a real name) is exploding with EIGHT, that's 8, blossoms... these 8 are acting normal, which is to say they're all the way open, but last night's 4 flowers were still barely open at quarter to midnight; I was so confused... always before on this plant they have opened by 10 or 10:30pm.

Back on topic: check out the Chinese Historical Society's fundraiser coming up, it's all about food! I mean, it's not just a banquet, the theme is actually Chinese food. They are honoring some very, very interesting people. Cool!
